Nizoral 1 % Description

Nizoral shampoo is an anti-dandruff shampoo. It is used to treat dandruff and to control flaking, scaling and itching due to dandruff. Nizoral shampoo contains ketoconazole, an antifungal medicine clinically proven to control dandruff. Nizoral shampoo works by controlling the growth of fungus, which is the root cause of dandruff, along with addressing the symptoms of dandruff.

Other shampoos with ketoconazole as their active ingredient include Ketomac shampoo, Ketocip shampoo, Nizol shampoo, and Exizol shampoo. Nizoral shampoo should be used only under medical supervision; do not use it as a regular shampoo. Wet the hair and scalp thoroughly before applying the shampoo, and then massage it into the scalp and hair for at least three minutes before rinsing it off with water.

Common side effects of Nizoral shampoo are dryness, irritation, or scalp redness. It's crucial to get medical help if these symptoms worsen or persist. Only if prescribed by a doctor should Nizoral shampoo be used by pregnant or nursing patients.

Nizoral shampoo should not be applied to broken or irritated skin; you should always follow your doctor's or chemist's instructions before using it. If you notice any strange symptoms or side effects, stop using the shampoo immediately and call your doctor.
